Been a while since I've had a chance to update things. I have been pretty busy around the house and work so time to work on the car has been short. Since the last post I have installed the export brace and shock caps, mounted the modern driveline reservoir and bled the hydraulic clutch, installed the new starter solenoid with new battery cables and finished the wiring up for the 3G alternator. Ordered my driveshaft from Driveshaft specialist of Texas which should be here Thursday, went with a 3" steel with a .083 wall thickness and 1330 spicer xl's on both ends. Also got my new saddle mount 3 core radiator with dual electric fans. Had to get the mounts to go from the core mount to saddle mount which I'm still waiting for them to show up. While waiting for the parts I decided to get started on the interior which turned into a huge disappointment. My TMI 1 piece headliner had a sag in it which I noticed once I had it installed so after talking with CJ's they told me to take it out and send it back. Worst part of the whole thing is that the replacement won't be here until mid April. Pretty upset about the timeframe but not much I can do now. I was able to get the new dash pad and knee pad installed along with the new door panels in the mean time.

Decided while I have a time to wait while the interior is gutted I decided to run new speaker wire to the rear deck for new 6x9's and I pulled the dash speaker which is going to be replaced also. My next steps are going to be to install the exhaust once I get the driveshaft installed and install the msd box, finish the fuel line from the pump to the carb and get it running and buttoned up under the hood so as soon as I get the headliner I can have it on the road in less than a day.

What kind of PCV system are you going to run? I would suggest making an evacuation system routed through the exhaust. It's easy and keeps the engine much cleaner.

I was planning on using a catch can then into the base of the carb. I thought about running it into the exhaust but the headers were coated and I didn't want to have the nipple for the pcv put on at FPA and create an issue with clearance. If they didn't need to be in the collector I could have probably stuck them into the pipe just past the ball flanges but I was always under the assumption that that had to be right where the 4 primaries merge.

Driveshaft showed up yesterday so I managed to get it in along with finishing up the exhaust system tonight. The lowest part of the exhaust is where it crosses under the trans cross member. It hangs about an inch below the bottom of the subframe. The new dash speaker also showed up today so I tossed it in once I finished up with the exhaust. I ordered new seat padding and edge padding from NPD which showed up also so I'm hoping to get the new cover on the back seats this weekend.

Great car. I just bought the same exact one in Jan. Same color and all. Good luck. When I get time I'll post some pics. Looks identical to yours

Thank you. I'm starting to get pretty excited now that I'm starting to see the finished product falling together.

67 Coupe Restomod build

I didn't have a whole lot of time to work on the car yesterday and I didn't want to bother heating up the garage for a few hours of work so I decided to recover my rear seats. The covers are the matching set that came with my Procar rally seats. After I pulled the covers off the seat back last weekend and was hit with a musty mildew smell immediately I decided I was going to get new padding and start back from fresh. I ordered a rear edge padding set and a and a complete pad set for the seats from NPD. I took a ride to Walmart and picked up some new burlap to make sure I was going to eliminate any sources of the smell. Once I got everything stripped down and cleaned up I started rebuilding the seats. This was my first attempt at upholstery and I'm pretty happy with how they came out. I didn't have a steamer to get out some of the wrinkles from where they were folded in the box but I'm assuming one he car gets warm and the stretch that's on the material they will work themselves out.

I straightened out the little wave in the middle of the front edge on the seat bottom when I hog ringed the material that goes up over the hump. Didn't realize the pic was taken before I fixed that.
